A lot of lying stems from lack of personal responsibility and from fear of others' reactions. Learning to say to yourself, "Yes, I'm responsible for this action or thought and it's okay" will help you not be afraid to tell the truth. If you are wrong, admit it. If you did harm, fix it. If you're ashamed to tell the truth, stop doing what makes you ashamed. Act with dignity and inner strength and you won't have to lie. i recently split up with my girlfriend because of my compulsive lying, it was over small things but she could not take anymore. I want to win her back but i need to prove to her that i can stop lying...does anybody have an answer...please? Where did lying begin? According to The Bible, Lying began in Genesis 3V1-10. Lying came from the devil, when he persuaded Eve to eat from the forbidden tree by twisting what God had said. If you want to worship the devil- go ahead!, but you cannot say that you are worshipping God and proclaim to be a Christian. One of the commandments says 'thou shalt not bear false witness'. God does not like a lying tongue and those that lie will perish! Lying is a sin unto God . In Luke , 'the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy, but the Lord wants us to live life more abundantly. If you value your life and you are a compulsive liar- this is the time to stop. Lying can destroy and eventually take you life. 1st Samuel Chapt1v1-18 - the story of how the Amalekite killed Saul (the Anointed One). Because the Amalekite wanted to gain favour from David, he lied and said that he killed Saul, while in fact Saul fell on his own sword. Because the Amalekite lied to David - David killed him. Whether you are a Christian or a non believer, lying is a sin unto God and to everyone else. You can not only lose the ones that care about you and love you, but you can also lose you life because you have lied with an intention to deceive.
